Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) attempted to reduce total spending by 2% in the bill, but his motion was denied in a vote of 73-24. Rand has consistently fought against excessive government bloat and called a previous spending bill “death of the Tea Party movement in America.” Hopefully, Congress can get our national deficit back in check in the near future.
2 Ukraine Hasn’t Probed Biden
Nazar Kholodnitskiy, Ukraine’s top anti-corruption official, stated that no investigation into Biden and his son has been conducted. Trump had made this request during his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy this summer.
MOSCOW (AP) — Ukraine’s top anti-corruption official said Friday his agency hasn’t investigated former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden or his son as U.S. President Donald Trump has suggested.

Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, while his father, Joe Biden, was spearheading diplomatic negotiations with Kyiv during Obama’s presidency. This timing is all too convenient, but Ukraine doesn’t believe there’s anything worth investigating. Trump has publicly stated his concerns about potential corruption within the Ukrainian government.
Kholodnitskiy stated during a radio interview that a previous probe into Burisma in 2017 was closed due to a lack of evidence. The court overruled this decision, but the case itself has remained in limbo ever since.
Unfortunately, it seems that we may never know if the Bidens are getting away with some shady business deals.
